Paul Bowles began travelling the moment he could — leaving America as a teenager to visit Gertrude Stein in Paris. He settled in Morocco after the war, and for thirty years travelled in North Africa, Central America, Southeast Asia, Indian and Sri Lanka (where he bought an island). He wrote articles, essays and journals along the way — writing which ranks with his novels in its astute observation, dry wit and impeccable prose. Travels brings together for the first time Paul Bowles's travel writing and journals. It includes the full text of his book Their Heads Are Green

We all know the phrase "the past is a foreign country", but what if instead of looking back to a time when we were younger, we looked back to a time when we were older! The Curious Case of Benjamin Button by F. Scott Fitzgerald is a strange tale. Benjamin Button is born as an old man, and dies as a baby — his life is lived in reverse. Emerging from the cradle smoking a pipe and reading encyclopaedias, Benjamin settles down to playing with toys in old age. Don't worry if you've seen the film with Brad Pitt — the book is nothing like it!

“It isn't possible to love and part. You will wish that it was. You can transmute love, ignore it, muddle it, but you can never pull it out of you. I know by experience that the poets are right: love is eternal.”

E. M. Forster's A Room With A View is an extraordinary novel about a young Edwardian girl, Lucy Honeychurch, finding her way in society. Arriving in Italy, she begins to discover that there is a world beyond the sleepy corner of England where she grew up. She has come to symbolise an entire generation of women including the suffragettes who campaigned for property rights and the right to vote.

Follow Lucy's journey as she breaks free of the stringent society of her upbringing. What will she choose, duty or love? England or Italy?
A Room with a View, E. M. Forster

“But sometimes illumination comes to our rescue at the very moment when all seems lost; we have knocked at every door and they open on nothing until, at last, we stumble unconsciously against the only one through which we can enter the kingdom we have sought in vain a hundred years — and it opens.”

Marcel Proust's In Search of Lost Time has been named as one of the best novels of the twentieth century. If you're looking for a totally engrossing read that will challenge you and keep going for some time, look no further!

Tim Hetherington was a talented photojournalist who spent most of his career in the most dangerous war zones before his life was tragically cut short when he died covering the Libyan civil war in 2011. In his short life he directed the critically-acclaimed documentary Restrepo, a film that follows a squad of US soldiers on their tour of duty in Afghanistan, and spent three years in Liberia covering the civil war there. A fearless man with an inspiring story.
